Outfit post: Feeling nerdy


Sweater: H&M, Blouse: Forever 21 (similar), Pants: Express (similar), Shoes: BCBG, Clutch: Boutique in San Clemente (similar), Glasses: eBay (similar), Necklace: Amrita Singh, Teardrop bracelet: c/o LYLIF, Bangle: Fornash, Watch: Vernier via Loehmann's

If there's one thing blogging has taught me, it's to push my own limits of what I think I'm capable of. Case in point:

1. I can (and will) wear nerdy glasses with clear plastic lenses that provide no optical benefit just because they're cute.
2. Those short in stature, like myself, can pull off wide leg pants.
3. Even if it's dark when I leave and dark when I come home, I can find a place to take outfit posts. Like in the garage elevator lobby in my apartment building. How's that for being resourceful?

Today, I say "yay" for stepping outside of comfort zones, thinking outside boxes and taking risks!

  1. You look adorable in those glasses, and that necklace is such a beautiful statement piece. Fantastic clutch as well. Excited to have found another D.C. blogger!

  2. My first thought on the glasses: Is Sally Jessie making a comeback? Second thought? I hope so, because they really, really work on you, especially with the hair, which has looked especially gorgeous lately!

  3. You look so adorable! Those glasses fit you well! Love the chunky sweater...and the clutch...and your necklace lol.
